Divorce & Separation

To get a divorce in Greensboro, North Carolina you’ll need a judgement of absolute divorce from Guilford County. As a no-fault state, neither partner has to prove who is at fault to get a divorce in North Carolina.

But, to get divorced you’ll need to meet certain criteria.

  1. Your marriage must be legal
  2. One person in the marriage must be a citizen of North Carolina or have lived in the state for at least 6 months.
  3. The married couple must live apart for one year.
  4. The time spent living apart must have been with the purpose of ending the marriage contract.

If you meet all the criteria, then you can petition the court for a judgement of absolute divorce. However, things can get complicated if both partners don’t agree or if there are children involved. If you need to protect your rights, our family law attorneys are here to help.

You can expect an honest and straightforward approach when you partner with our Greensboro divorce attorneys. We focus on balance – we develop an understanding of both sides of the issue before giving legal advice. We’ll work in partnership with you and take into consideration your experience and input as a component to developing an effective case strategy.

Child Custody

When a custody case is brought to a Guildford County judge, he or she will use various factors to determine custodial rights. The court’s primary goal is to decide what is in the best interest for the child or children. Common factors that are considered in this decision include the parents’ living conditions, employment history, criminal histories, drug or alcohol use, and the parents’ medial history.

However, if parents can’t come to an agreement over the child custody order or schedule, then a mediation is necessary. This is the time to retain the services of a knowledgeable child custody attorney. Our family law attorneys in Greensboro have experience handling a variety of child custody cases.

Here at Dummit Fradin, our Greensboro family lawyers spend every day in court. We know the law, and we know the issues that families find themselves dealing with. Whether you seek sole custody or joint custody our Greensboro family lawyers are on your side. Skilled in negotiations and litigation, we’ll counsel you on the right approach to your case while keeping your goals in mind.

Child Support

In North Carolina is the duty of both parents to support their children. When parents decide to part ways, child support is calcultated using the North Carolina Child Support Guidelines. These guidelines create a presumed reasonable amount of monthly child support. They’re meant to creat a fair arrangement for the child and the parents.

A few factors that determine child support in North Carolina include:

  • The number of overnights with each parent

  • The relative gross income of each parent

  • Whether either parent has a prior child support obligation

  • Whether either parent has other minor children living in the home

  • Which parent provides health insurance for the minor child

  • Which parent provides work-related childcare for the minor child

  • Extraordinary expenses of the minor child

It is important to have a child support attorney review your income and deductions to ensure that you are either receiving or paying the correct amount under the Guidelines. Additionally, if you need a child support order changed after the fact, an experienced custody attorney can help guide you through the process.
